The Left Is Rewriting American History
I just found out that the Naming Commission, a board formed by the (National Socialist) Democrat Party to rewrite American history, has released a list of National Guard units that participated in the American War Between the States and have been ordered to remove the battle streamers awarded for those engagements they fought in during the war from their colors. In the case of North Carolina units, the 120th Infantry Regiment of Wilmington has been ordered to remove seven battle streamers.
All total, 491 battle streamers are to be removed from Southern units still active.
While I realize this may not mean much to the average civilian, it can be devastating to those who served in these units over the years. It means removing a piece of their unit’s history. It means telling the families of the men who served in these units and the sacrifices they made mean nothing.
This – along with the renaming of military posts and Navy ships, the removal of the names of Southern officers and enlisted men from buildings and streets, basically the elimination of anyone associated with the South who made the ultimate sacrifice for what they believed in – is interesting because on the other side we have the names of people, criminals, being honored. Talk about an upside-down world, all in the name of political correctness and spinelessly pacifying their base. Where will it end?
The left won’t be satisfied until they’ve rewritten American history to suit them. They’ll continue to remove and redo the truth until it suits their views and purpose. The best example I can give is found in the book “1984” by George Orwell. I recommend you read it. It’s the handbook for the left and how they want to do things.
I already know there will be plenty of people who will accuse me of being the typical redneck good ol’ boy, but don’t care. I’m proud of my and my family’s military service and heritage all the way back to the Revolutionary War.
Don’t ever care what the far left woke democrats think. They have done an excellent job in destroying America. Their day will come and many will wake up to eliminate them and their policies of hate and division.
Thank you, Alan! History should be taught—-not erased! Democrats want to erase their ties to the Klan and to the Jim Crow laws they authored!
What has been destroyed about America? Is it the acceptance of others by being ‘woke’ that makes America an awful place? Is it the acknowledgement of our racial history and the celebration of those that help us overcome that negative aspect of our history that has made America such an awful place? Or maybe it is offering of assistance to the less fortunate that has made American an awful place? It sounds like you are the one full of hate…not the woke democrats.
Be specific JV and be sure to include what about being ‘woke’ specifically has ‘destroyed’ America since you tossed in the phrase your Shepards have taught you to use.
Look at how ridiculous it is re-naming Fort Bragg. The media reported it will cost over 6 MILLION DOLLARS to change all the signage and everything to Fort Liberty. 6 MILLION DOLLARS could do a lot to fix necessary things in N.C. Everybody remember that when you go to the ballot box and vote these money wasters out.
If we keep removing history from our society we will be subject to making the same decisions again whether right or wrong. We don’t want another civil war or another Hitler
Proud Boys… ugh.
What has destroyed America?
Woke schools ..pushing indoctrination and playing with children’s minds, not educating them.
Woke military..check out the top 2 clowns that report to a no mind president you elected.
Racial history? You nor I were alive 200 years ago. LBJ got all the great plans started to start an early EDI.
Offering assistance? Where have you been? America rebuilt Europe and Japan. America and Americans have always been generous. Sadly the generosity has become a way of life for many.
You think your socialist ideals will make America great. I can already see the weakness socialism causes. Check out the status of other socialist countries and go give it a try if you wish.
Hate, you are stupid to even write that statement.
I am very capable to think on my own.
I believe it is those that believe the Traitors of Confederate States of America are the ones that have been trying to rewrite history by claiming that the civil war was about anything other than slavery. Changing names of ships, buildings, bases, etc… doesn’t erase the traitors from history. It just takes them off the pedestal. The left isn’t banning books as the Right Wingers are doing. They are just removing the Traitors from being commemorated.
Personally, I don’t care about these names but don’t claim it is about rewriting history. That is clearly a right-wing approach given all the banning of books about our history of racism in the United States.
Please show me where I ever claimed the Civil War was about JUST slavery.
As for banning books, I notice you leave out the part about how the only books spoken of are porn found in school libraries, not bookstores.
And I also notice you are alright with putting up a drug dealer on a pedestal as a hero of the people and an example for children.
And one other thing…you refer to those that fought on the Confederate side as traitors. I’m thinking back to a time when a bunch of people decide to revolt against their government only they won (and I thank God they did) and now are called patriots. And yes, I would have been there with them. Funny how you seem to overlook that…oh, that’s right, that fact has hypocritical overtones to your argument.
Here is a hint Alan: I don’t write just about you. I mostly am making general statements against right wing rhetoric (That you often repeat note for note). The examples of apologists for the traitors that tried to break up the United States by claiming the civil war was about States rights is very common and was even repeated in the Rhino comments section not too long ago. (I believe you tooted some horn about family being confederates).
As a United States citizen, I do consider anyone that attempts to break up our great nation a traitor. It is about perspective. If you claim loyalty to the British over the United States, you are free to call Americans traitors.
So which is it? You a patriot to the United States or England?
So when the American colonists rebelled against The Crown, were they traitors?
When Texans rebelled against Mexico, were they traitors?
When little latter day wankers like you besmirch the honor and reputation of men like Robert E. Lee, it’s like Harvey Weinstein besmirching the sexual propriety of the Pope.
Yup. Traitors to the crown for sure. Glad that did it and won. Also very glad that the traitors to the United States lost.
Robert E Lee was a great military leader and it is well worth studying his approach to military strategy and leadership. But he was especially traitorous as he was offered a choice to fight for the United States (The Union) or the successionists (The Confederates). He chose poorly and elected to fight for the right to continue to abuse fellow human beings in the name of greed. And lost.
Well then I’m with “the traitors”.
The same “traitors” who fought against oppressive and overreaching government so they could determine their own destiny – whether in the Revolutionary War or The War For Southern Independence.
The victors get to write the history books, so the Revolutionary War “traitors” are now patriots and national heroes, whereas the Southern patriots and Confederate heroes are reviled by little men like you as “traitors”. How comfortable and easy it must be to luxuriate in your smugness.
Austin admits to siding with traitors. Paint me shocked.
Read Saul Alinsky’s “How to create a Socialist State”, and his 12 rules for radicals. You can find it on line.
It looks just like the “Democrat Playbook”. This is on line, too.
Democrats say the same garbage about conservatives. Yada yada yada yada YAWN.
Many of the Confederate Generals and their footsoldiers possessed breathtaking courage and tenacity. Defiling their memory is despicable, but the contemporary Left is contemptible and totalitarian.
Thanks for your service Alan, and thanks for using correct terminology for the conflict. It is correctly termed The War Between The States, or The War For Southern Independence (the most accurate term).
Thank you Austin. I like to think that I am carrying on a family tradition of service to this great country. I lost an uncle who was a POW of the Japanese in WWII, I had another relative who was designated a Hero of the Revolution in the War for Independence, another who served as the Ambassador to France after the Revolution. I also found out I am a direct descendant of General George C. Marshall. My son served in the Marines (but I forgave him, lol) and currently have two grandsons serving. Pride for this country runs in my family and we stand ready to defend it. Is it perfect? Not by any means, but it’s been a shining light for the world since inception.
Right or wrong I stand in defense of it, which is more then I can say for some. As the old saying goes if it’s as bad as you put it up to be, I’m ready to help you pack.
Hey Alan, check out an article in The American Thinker, dated today (2023/3/21) by Steve McCann. It outlines eight startling similarities between today’s American Democrat Party and the Nazis (technically the National Socialist German Workers’ Party).
The Left has always been evil, whether in 1930’s Germany or today’s USA.
Both sides say this kind of garbage. Yada Yada Yada YAWN.
They were traitors to the United States just as those who preach separation today are traitors to the United States of America. (MTG for example).
Answer the questions above, genius.
Ok, which question did I not answer for your slow narrow minded bigoted self? You two have so much stupid slapped around this page, I must have lost track.
LOL ! You have indeed lost track, you moron. Check the time/date stamps on the comments and you might realise what you’ve incorrectly assumed.
You’re a bleedin’ idiot.
Why don’t you just go away?
It was a civil war. As defined be Webster: “a war between citizens of the same country.”
Chris you understand the US is a democrat republic. Do you understand the meaning of that. Please read the definition and then take time to read what the Constitution says about state’s sovereign rights as it was written, then talk about traitors.
That’s incorrect, regardless of what your “expert” says (you’re a big believer in “experts” aren’t you? You unquestioningly believe whatever they tell you, like a little sheep).
A civil war is when two or more parties are fighting for control of a country, like the English Civil War or the Spanish Civil War. The War For Southern Independence does not fit the definition because the Confederacy never wanted to defeat the political structures of the North and control the US. It just wanted to peacefully secede. The warmonger Lincoln decided to coerce the Confederate states into remaining subject to the Fedral Government, and was so despicable and totalitarian that he was the first exponent of “total war” (not Hitler). It was , for the first time, not armies vs. armies and navies vs. navies, but an all out assault on the people, economy, and society of the South.
It was a war of secession, and it was conducted brutally by a nasty tyrant. But his side won, so now he’s “a hero”…
Well said Austin, and the same for you Will. Thanks fora reminding everyone that America was founded on the premise of a Democratic Republic.
